Vaginal dryness

Low levels of estrogen cause the lining of the vaginal walls to thin, become drier and less elastic.

About the Condition

Vaginal dryness is a symptom which many women find uncomfortable and physically distressing. Fortunately it is one problem that can easily be helped. A deficiency of estrogen will cause the lining of the vaginal walls to thin, become drier and less elastic (atrophic).

Sexual intercourse is often painful which means that most women are less than enthusiastic about sex at this time.

Symptoms of Vaginal dryness

The lining of the vaginal walls become thin, drier and less elastic (atrophic).

Your interest in sex may diminish (low libido, lack of arousal, diminished desire, poor aoursal or absence of orgasm) and you may develop a dry vagina, so that intercourse is painful or irritating (dyspareunia). A less resilient vagina is more easily traumatized by penetrative sex. You may have difficulty achieving an orgasm. You may feel too tired for sex due to chronically disturbed sleep, lack of the hormone testosterone and iron deficiency due to menstrual irregularities.

Treatment for Vaginal dryness

Estrogen creams and pessaries that work locally can be very effective. Because they are local treatments they are not absorbed into the system and therefore less likely to cause symptoms of estrogen dominance.

The use of progesterone creams externally may help with vaginal dryness by making the estrogen receptors in the wall of the vagina more responsive to naturally produced estrogen. Progesterone creams are generally not suitable for insertion into the vagina.
